Hi I’m Eric. I build things with Perl. Perl is awesome. I’ve been building things with Perl since 1998. Currently I’m building things at DuckDuckGo. DuckDuckGo is awesome.

Few things excite me more than concise, readable, well organized code with an intuitive and forgiving api – except for ice cream and peanut butter and peanut butter ice cream.

I like to travel too. I’ve lived and worked in Minneapolis, Beijing, Singapore, London and am currently based in Chicago.
